Keep the wheels clean by washing the salt off frequently, don't let the salt sit overnight. Add protection by waxing the wheels periodically. I have chrome wheels, and the salt has done nothing (so far). But salt is not good, and you don't want to drive in the snow too much where they apply salt to the roads. I don't drive my Nitro when it snows, I only got caught in the snow once. Wheels still looking good!I Have A Question What Is The Deal With Rims And Winter When It Snows I Know You Shouldnt Have Them On In Winter But If You Wash Them Off And Keep The Salt Off Them You Should Be Fine Correct Please Give Me Som Advice Thanks???
Easier said than done with a daily driven vehicle and non-stop 0 degree temperatures. I know my wheels will look like crap in a year or so, even with washing the salt off as often as possible...Keep the wheels clean by washing the salt off frequently, don't let the salt sit overnight.
I get it fom Wal-Mart, Mothers, Meguires Turtle Wax, RainX (spray wax) , are all good for wheels. If they are chrome wheels, you will be wanting to use microfiber cloth hand towels as well when you apply the wax (liquid wax of course), and wipe off. I clean my Nitro and wheels often! Which means, every single time I get caught in rain or snow.where do you get the wax or can you go to a car wash and get it done?? what is the name brand you use?? and how many times do you do it a month???
Don't know what type of wheels you have bch, but I can you're upstate NY. I also don't know if you guys up in Rochester have any indoor hand car washes up there, but that's all I use in the winter, and that's all we city boyz mostly use. In the summer, I do it myself.Easier said than done with a daily driven vehicle and non-stop 0 degree temperatures.

Since they don't salt the roads where you drive, I guess you have nothing to worry about AJ...That would be tough around here if they used the salt. Temps will drop well under freezing for days or weeks on end. Makes it tough to wash the car at all.
